Kick a Cobalt for Christ!!!

I was towing my boat back from the lake today, minding my own business. I was waiting at a stoplight in the left lane. The right hand lane runs out and merges left about 1/8 - 1/4 mile past the light. The van next to me makes a right turn and I see in the mirror a bright red farty little Chevy sitting back in my blind spot, who thinks he's going to jump around me when the light changes. I just grin and spool up the turbo. We go to green and I stomp it. I look in my right side mirror and watch Mr. Red Cobalt's eye get real big before disappearing in a black cloud. For the next 2 miles, he stayed at least 5 car lengths back of me until he turned.

Yes, I know it's not like I toasted a vette or a ricer, but it's a little hard to race when your towing a 16' boat & trailer. I guess I'll take my victories where I can.

I'd chalk that one up as a kill. I'm sure he was hoping to get around you before the merge so he wouldn't be "stuck behind a slow truck with a trailer". I get that a lot going out to the g/f's house. No one realizes that it is possible for a 8000# truck to beat their car off of a light.
